Booster Gold, the Total Package

In addition to being a good source for publisher news and great deals on comics and art, comic book conventions are a great place for fans to get together with other fans and creators and celebrate their heroes. Sometimes, fans go so far as to dress as those heroes. This can lead to awkward situations.

The above autobiographical strip by artist and last week's Boston Comic Convention attendee Erica Henderson illustrates a significant reason why many of us can't, won't, or shouldn't dress like our favorite super heroes in our daily lives. There is a lot of truth in this cartoon.

One of these things is not like the other. The Booster Gold cosplayer on the left won the award for "Best Comic Book Hero Costume Honorable Mention" at BCC 2012. It's a great costume, even if it does suffer from a case of the unmentionables. If nothing else, it reminds us why Booster Gold must look different on television than he does in the comics. That is, unless they can find an actor who is really willing to sacrifice a part of himself for the role.

Rolling Back the Years

According to DC Women Kicking Ass, the rumor that DC will be re-numbering all titles again has been confirmed at this past weekend's Boston Comic Con:

This afternoon at the Boston Comic Con a number of creators in the new 52 discussed various aspects of the reboot while confirming the story from Bleeding Cool earlier this week that DC will issue "0" issues in September that will feature origins or stories about the characters or their casts that happened before issue #1.

Is re-numbering to become an annual ploy with DC, or do DC's editors really think that 1994's Zero Hour crossover gimmick deserves a 18th Anniversary edition? For the record, this will be the third #0 issue to feature Booster Gold: Justice League International #0 in 2012, Booster Gold #0 in 2008, and Extreme Justice #0 in 1994 (which, running counter to DC's practice of interrupting sequences with randomly placed zero issues, was actually published before Extreme Justice #1)!

On the plus side, if there is ever a time to find out how much of Booster Gold's history and supporting cast survived Flashpoint, it'll be a zero-issue origin story. Oh, Skeets, why have you forsaken us?
